We’re heading into weekend 1,457 of quarantine, and if you’re missing your favorite local dining spots, you’re not alone! Experience some of your Cincinnati eats — all from the safety of your home.

Here are 5 Classic Cincinnati meal kits to make quarantine fun:

Camp Washington Chili (pictured)

Camp Washington Chili is now selling to-go coney kits so you and your family can make some cheese coneys at home just how you like. The coney kits cost $25 and come with a dozen hot dogs and buns, a mini bottle of mustard and of course, cheese, chili and onions. The kits also comes with four York peppermint patties and oyster crackers. The restaurant is open 24 hours a day, Monday through Friday for drive-thru and carryout, the coney kits are available for both to-go options.

Jeff Ruby’s

For a next-level dining experience, Jeff Ruby’s has you covered. Packages serve four and include steaks for the grill, Freddie Salad, Jeff Ruby’s Mac & Cheese, asparagus, Sixteen Bricks sourdough bread and the famous compound butter. Steak options include filets, NY strip and ribeye. At $125, these kits are admittedly a bit of a splurge, but considering how much a date night typically costs, these meal kits make for a special night in.

Montgomery Inn

For $99, get a feast for 6-8 people from this Cincy favorite! The Family Pack includes 2 King Slabs, 2 quarter chickens (all white) OR 20 chicken wings, pan of Saratoga chips, pan of salad OR pan of coleslaw, BBQ sauce and 1 fully baked pie. (Smaller families can order a pared-down version of this menu for jus $59.95.)


Does it get any more ‘Cincinnati’ than LaRosa’s?? For $75, pick up a LaRosa’s Anniversary Meal kit and live large! The kit includes: two bags of LaRosa’s Meatballs, one 4-pack of Hoagy Buns, one jar of LaRosa’s Family Recipe Original Pasta Sauce and two LaRosa’s Original Pepperoni Pizzas.

The Root Beer Stand

A “Heat and Eat” Family Pack is $30, and will make you feel like you’re at this Cincy institution. The take-away kits include 6 footlong hot dogs, 6 footlong buns, plus all the fixins (cheese, chili and onions). Add a gallon of root beer for $6 and you’ve got the complete Root Beer Stand experience. (Have a smaller family? Get a ‘Junior’ version — pictured above — for just $20!) The Root Beer Stand is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11 am to 8 pm.
